Chris O'Shea conceived and built this robotic mirror installation along with Random International. The installation of 64 mirrors is called "Audience."

The mirrors follow people around that they find interesting, allowing their target to see their own reflection at all angles.

When the mirrors get bored, they go back to chatting and mingling among themselves. When someone else approaches, they stop talking and mingling and go back to staring at the person.
